The Rudolf Augstein Foundation is a non-profit and independent foundation under civil law. We commemorate one of the most important German journalists of the 20th century; through our foundationâ€™s work, the concerns that motivated our namesake and thought leader Rudolf Augstein can continue to be addressed into the future.
We do this by encouraging critical and independent journalism, improving the starting and development opportunities of disadvantaged children and young people, and enabling artistic experiments.
Artists of all genres can apply for the Fleetstreet Residency Program until 30 September 2020. The program offers both groups and individual artists the opportunity for scenic research and experimental work, without depending on a specific production. In this way the residencies create an informal space for new aesthetics, collaborations and forms of presentation. The Rudolf Augstein Foundation supports the Residency Program since 2011. Applications are accepted once a year.
You can submit an application at any time in any of our three funding areas. For art projects there are fixed submission deadlines; in this case, your application will be considered for the upcoming submission deadline, that will probably be 1st December 2020. All important information can be found here.
